Universal Class

Continuing Education Classes


Universal Class brings libraries lifelong learning courses in over 30 subject areas, many of which offer continuing education units (CEUs). More than 500 courses are available, and all are designed and led by professional instructors to build deeper understanding and mastery of subject matter. Universal Class includes videos, assignments, quizzes, tests, and options for social media interaction with other learners. Patrons may take multiple classes and learn at their own pace.


Continuing Educational Unit (CEU) Courses: Many Universal Class courses offer CEU credit. The typical time to complete a course is approximately 10 hours per CEU credit.

Video-Audit Mode: Universal Class offers over 100 courses for learners wanting to review courses without assignments, tests, or certification. Learners starting a video-audit course may switch over to the CEU course at any time.

Something for Everyone: From technical courses on computer software to digital photography to babysitting 101, a huge range of topics is available.

Multifaceted Learning Styles: Video-based and written lessons are monitored by live instructors, so students interact with a real person while learning about the topic of their choice.

Multiple Course Enrollment: Each learner may enroll in up to five courses at a time, with six months to complete each course.

Internationally Recognized CEU Certification: Universal Class is IACET (International Association for Continuing Education and Training) certified for all courses. The IACET Council on Standards Development is responsible for the development, maintenance, and dissemination of evidence-based standards that promote and enhance continuing education and training (CE/T).
